committee, michael steele. perfect morning to have you all onboard. willie, hello. >> wow. >> a couple of things went down last night. we -- mitt lost to rick santorum and to newt. right? >> third place in both states. >> that's not good, michael. >> not good. and they keep crying about the numbers, we've got the delegates and i think willie had the perfect quote for the day. you know, it's like you know, vote for me, i've got the math. it doesn't work like that. >> the math -- >> something like that. >> they keep talking about the math. >> well, they do, and the reality of it is, you're not going to waltz into the nomination with the votes in the back pocket. give all that to romney, fine, you're close to somewhere around 400 delegates short to actually the get the nomination. and with proportional voting coming up with everything else, unless he's pulling 50% to 60% of that vote, i don't know how he gets there. the only way it happens is if newt or santorum drops out of the race and that changes it. but as you can see from last night, i don't think anybody's going anywhere. there's n
," sam stein. former chairman of the republican national committee, michael steele, kelly o'donnell. in new york, willie geist and msnbc contributor, mike barnicle. guys, a lot to talk about. willie, the supreme court case. unbelievable poll coming out not only on the health care law and what americans want, but also in afghanistan. americans have some very clear cut decisions, made up their mind on health care and the war. >> the question of the war, "the new york times" poll, it's not just the number, which is 7 and 10 americans think we should not be fighting in afghanistan. itis the jump. it's up 16 points. there's not a lot of mystery to it. you can walk through the terrible things happening with staff sergeant robert bales, the burning of the koran and where nato officers and troops have been shot by soldiers. >> yeah. >> there's a slow, steady beat of the american people saying we ought not be there anymore. >> sam stein, you look at the cbs poll that came out, "the new york times" poll that came out yesterday. the first case of the argument. it was fascinating. the s
thing. they are no more thoughtful than the rest of us let's ask an actual gatekeeper. michael steele joins us from washington as chairman of the republican national committee, he oversaw the changes and the rules of this year's delegation. >> call me crazy. how are you doing? >> i would never call you crazy. >> crazy like a fox, crazy like a fox. >> that's -- that's -- you can now make the case. have you the opportunity to make that case. here's what i would like you to describe to us. there were rule changes that were created in november, 2008. >> my understanding was that there was a feeling that -- on the republican side that john mccain sewed up the nomination too quickly. and actually the long contested primary on the democratic side which at the time everyone was worried about was actually the party's benefit and rules were changed with an eye towards moving the contest in that direction. is that the case? >> you just summed it up perfectly. exactly the analysis that came out of the 2008 primary. by this time in 2008, our nominee was decided and it was john mccain and for the n
if they would clear the field. >> not the intention of former national committee share michael steele saying when he helped change the g.o.p. rules, he said i wanted a brokered convention. that's one of my goals. steele doing an about face telling "huffington post" that was his personal view and not something that the committee set out to design. >> they are not going to nominate a moderate--we're going to be the nominee. we're going to be the one who provides the best vision and best contract to president obama, who has the best chance of winning. governor romney will not make it. >> not as long as he insists on treating southern republicans to sit homes in this ways. >> i'm learn to go say y'all and i like grits. strange things are happening to me. >> "huffington post's" sam stein tweeted how much his friends own stuff. now just on the bidding of payton manning quote, i don't want to see him at miami or the jets. both owners are friends of mine. hash tag humble brag. we'll look at romney's humble brag in a minute. i'm joined by ken vogel with politico. good evening. >> hey keith. >> gingri
and the statue of lenin and stalin? >> michael steele is only one man. he fought the good fight, but there's only so much he can do. >> holy cow. you know, we usually have the democratic hour of power here. but seriously, last week was a week with carl marks. even barnacle went way off the cliff. >> he was wearing a nike pullover track suit on friday, so he completely mailed it in by thursday afternoon. >> oh, i hear you guys were so unkind to mike barnicle, i even felt sorry for him. >>> coming up, we're going to be talking to presidential candidate rick santorum. >>> also, congressman elijah cummings. >>> and later, we'll have willem dafoe stopping by. very exciting. >>> also, mika jets in from the south of france. but first, here's bill cairns with a check on the forecast. bill, i just -- i don't know what to say about this weather except you've got to love global warming. i hope it sticks around for a couple of months. >> yeah, i know. don't go buying any snow blowers anytime soon. it's just incredible. international falls, minnesota, one of the coldest places there is, was 80 degrees this we

for republicans to reach out. herman cain is a very strong supporter of mine. i worked for years with michael steele. j.c. watts is a very strong supporter of mine. i have had a more managedical effort to include african-americans in my campaign than any other republican. i think this is part of this that i am proud of. professor of carnegie, leading african-american is endorsing me. i think there are a number of people who give us a much broader reach than the other candidates. >> greta: you know, i know your time is limited. every candidate's time is limited. but i have been monitoring this. i haven't seen one republican candidate and i have not seen president obama go into the inner cities in the last two years and talk to these people in the inner cities whose unemployment rate is dreadfully high and have that conversation. they are not going to the town hall meetings and not watching the news and they are excluded from the process. >> why don't you come with me and let's do that? when i was speaker of the house, we had town hall meetings in washington, d.c. i think i am the only speaker
:00 eastern tonight. here tonight, director howard feinman. and michael steele. both msnbc political analysts. and malika henderson. we've got brand new exit poll information out of illinois and the illinois primary voters. we asked which candidate would most likely beat barack obama? not surprisingly, nearly all of romney voters, 93%, said they thought their guy was most electable. but 28% of santorum voters said they saw him beating obama. howard, speak of sports, that means people would rather vote for the guy, at least in some locations, they deeply believe in rather than the guy in november. >> i think some of those people buy santorum's argument, that you have to solidify the base, and if the base isn't really excited, isn't ready to walk through walls, then that's a weak position to be in against the president. >> tweedledum and tweedledee argument. does it work? they're too close in the end to president and the moderate republican, former governor of massachusetts? in the end their too close to excite the public? >> i think there's some truth to that. i know that's a fear for a lot of
a brokered convention. when you hear that, what do you think? that's michael steel who used to be the chairman obviously. >> i like michael steel. >> oh, no. whenever someone starts, i like -- i'm going to write that down as one of my phrases, i like. >> bless his heart, i hope you don't buzz me on this. >> you know what that means, chip. >> we know what's coming. this is not good for the party, to go through a brokered convention. i don't think that's what chairman steel's goal was. i think it was make the process a little longer. the last 20 years the nomination's been over in one or two or three states. now we have this very long process but usually we would be good. then we added super pacs to it so no longer do you win states to get momentum to stay in the race. now you just get one or two contributors to write really big checks and you can stay in the whole way and ultimately that may not be good for our nominee. now mitt romney is using it if he's the nominee to his advantage. senator santorum has used this time to his advantage to build a great organization that a lo
at santorum, it will be interesting to see what happens because when michael steele gave that same comment about limbaugh being an entertainer he got killed for it and was forced to apologize. i wonder what will happen to santorum. he may find himself in a bit of a glitch. the comments were out reasoningous and should never have been made. that goes without saying. >> why do you think mitt romney's comments are go good and why you think any of the front-runners on the republican side weighed in with a more aggressive condemnation? >> romney could have been a little more aggressive, but you don't pick a fight with rush limbaugh. >> is that what it is? >> yeah, to some extent, and plus he was able -- more importantly, politically, he was able to bring it back to the issues. he's going strong into ohio and he should stay on his message and not get tangled up into any of this conversation. >> ann, do you agree with that because my question to you is have one of the candidates stepped up and really condemned limbaugh's comments? might it should helped in the primary in do you think there's poli
've established a few things. one is this. barber shops matter. remember back in february when michael steele and anita hill shared with us the agreement that barber shops have been and continue to be historically and contemporarily important places for communities to gather, discuss political issues, argue about news and information. if you're going to be joining us regularly, you get to go to the barbershop a lot. this week, we headed to the barbershop for one reason. to watch basketball. that's right. nerdland is in the throes of march madness and we decided that this was madness best experienced in a couple of barber shops in the heart of new york's brooklyn and harlem. >> i'm arnold. i've bp a barber since '89. we have the college court liu. a lot of them come to me for haircuts. >> we come here all the time. games with the fellas. we all like different players. differences of opinion. >> i put dell over nuchlt lv. >> they're more nba fan. my man, we big college basketball fans. so we haven't had a rowdy atmosphere yet. had this gets down to the final four, it probably get a little more
in the middle of march when mccain won texas and ohio. >> when michael steel said he did that intentionally, that he thought sort of leading up to a brokered convention made it high drama, i'm sort of quoting him. >> look, he was wanting to build excitement. look at what happens. >> it's not everywhere but in some cases. also a look at the conservative. romney's positions on the issues. two conservatives say 10%. 50% say he's not conservative enough. that's certainly sticking. >> we always look for historical pair parallels. in 1980 ronald regan was running against george h.w. bush. people were asking former president gerald ford to consider stepping back in the race. the point is not this that mitt romney or rick santorum or ronald regan. ronald regan wasn't ronald regan at this point. we continue to look at these guys struggling to win over voters. put that in context. it doesn't mean each one of these guys is absolutely awful and will lose to obama. >> history is always interesting. historically my knee jerk reaction is the disaffected will fall in line once there is a candidate. >> and
robust. because we're seeing some concerning data in terms of steel production that would indicate otherwise. >> michael, let's talk about investing, given all of this, that we're going to see next week. you favor qualcomm and gold right now. are these long-term plays? >> qualcomm is a short-term as well as a long-term pad. i think as the ipad 3 comes out next week and we have the whole new version of the apple frenzy, it will affect it in the right space. the sell-off that happened this week was quite interesting. gold rallied up to only being down 5%. i think that gold is going to continue to be a play, because inflation is eventually coming around the corner. if i could make the comment about greece, i'm of the belief that greece is just really in a slow default right now. the greece problem is really not solved. i think they're trying to throw trial balloons out so eventually greece defaults. as for china, as you know i'm in asia quite often, i think china is going to avoid a hard landing. you are already starting to see them adjust bank requirements. they'll probably put a sti
back machine, at one point, hyman roth told michael corelone the combined enterprise had surpassed u.s. steel, back then that was a big deal. these days u.s. steel is a $4 billion company versus apple's $545 billion. at the time we had two leaders of relatively dubious note. chevron's on the eve of the epic run and total collapse in oil, almost $100. and alcoa, holy cow, alcoa $40 then. that was just when china decided to flood the world with aluminum and just when the cost of making the stuff spiked, collapse in profit margins, collapse in stock. in other words, the last time we were at these levels, the dow was being led not by the u.s., but chinese growth. now the dow has a whole new crop of leaders. jpmorgan, arguably the premiere banking institution on earth. >> buy, buy, buy! >> ibm, a spectacularly well run international consulting company tremendous intellectual capital, caterpillar, which may be levered to china, may have an ace in the hole with the u.s. market given that the last time the average was twice as much business in this country as it's doing now. it's the subtext
